I lie Illinois Municipal League, which provides for 
one-third being paid over io municipalities, with 
certain restrictions as to the use of same. 

'il5. Amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act which 
changes State vehicle license fees so that they may 
bo graded according to the weight of the vehicle. 

416. This is an amendment to the i\Ioti)r Vehicle 
.Vet that provides that in addition to regular license 
fees there shall be a tax of one-half cent per ton per 
mile. There is a provision which exempts motor 
vehicles used 'in cities and villages of over 10,000 
inhabitants, but the exemption appears to apply to 
use in cities only and city owners would be required 
to make their returns for all operations outside of 
the city. 

417. A bill requiring the registration nf all 
motion pictures to be used in the State w'ith the 
Department of Registration and Education. This, of 
course, affects the City's censorship. 

429. This bill provides for the repeal of the 1913 
municipal ownership of the Public Utilities Act. 

440. Bill for the licensing of milk dealers by the 
Department of Public Health. Will affect the City's 
control of the milk situation in Chicago.

and Commerce. This affects the City's control of 
this business. 

468. Designed to make a special assessment re- 
fund to various municipalities, including one to the 
City of Chicago on a sewer system. 

480. This is another bill providing for the pay- 
ment of taxes semi-annually. 

482. Bill providing for a Firemen's Annuity and 
Benefit Fund, similar to that for the Police Depart- 
ment. 

498. This is a bill providing for four-year terms 
for aldermen in Chicago, but it is not the one pre- 
]iared by this department at the direction of the 
City Council. We have the one prepared by us but 
it has not yet been introduced. 

500. This is another bill providing for the con- 
trol of real estate brokers and salesmen by the 
State Department of Registration. 

526. Amendment to Revenue Act designed to 
make the 1929 taxes payable in twenty installments, 
one-twentieth to be paid on the first day of each 
year up to and including 1951. There is an 
emergency clause attached to the bill, but it has not 
|)roceeded farther than reference to a committee. 

536. Bill designed to make motor vehicles of all 
kinds carry insurance to protect the public in case 
(if liability for injury. 

547. Amendment to Cities and Villages Act giving 
the City Council authority to direct the location and

idosive materials. 

548. Amendment to the Oil Inspection Act which 
would restore to cities the power of regulation in- 
stead of to the State Department of Trade and Com- 
merce. 

555. This is a bill designed to make it possible to 
bring parties into court for violation of an ordinance 
without making arrests. 

560. This bill provides for the repeal of Articles 
I Io VII of the Public Utilities Act. This seems to 
})(• a rather sweeping repeal and appears to leave 



(inly I hat portion ot (Ik; acl whicli pi-ovide.s for local 
transit commissions in cilics of 500,000 oi- more, but 
there may be some ruoi'f of the act left whicji' can 
only be determined upon closer examination. 

562. Amendment to the Cities and Villages .\ct 
by which cities would be authorized to direct the 
location and regulate the construction and use of 
public, quasi-public and |iri\alf garages, 'i'his bill 
was introduced on Ijehalt of tin- cily after- this de- 
partment submitted a draft of same to your Honor- 
able Body. 

573. This is an amendment (o the act relalinu' 
to the registration of births and deaths, and provides 
that in cities of more than 100,000 inhabitants the 
local registrars shall keep their records in their own 
otfices instead of sending them to the County Clerk. 

574. This is a city bill introduced at the direction 
of your Honorable Body provifling that railroads may 
make binding contracts with the city for the con- 
struction of subways at their own expense under 
their tracks for the purpose of extending public 
streets thereunder. It validates all provisions and 
agreements of the character heretofore named. 

575. This is the Gasoline Tax Bill prepared by 
this department at the direction of your Honorable 
Body and cuts the gasoline lax to one and one-half 
cents per gallon instead of three cents per gallon as 
at present. It provides for the payment of one- 
third of the tax to the city. 

576. Amendment to the Playground Act of 1917 
which limits the application of same to school dis- 
tricts of smaller municipalities.

lier of a municipal fire department shall be liable in 
damages for an injury to the person or property of 
another, caused while operating a motor vehicle in 
the discharge of his duties as a fireman. 

654. This is an amendment to the Cities and 
Villages Act which apparently is intended to give 
cities and villages general police powers. 

655. This bill would authorize the city to levy a 
tax for fire protection in case the same is provided 
for at a special election in the municipality. 

667. A bill designed to provide for emergency 
relief by the creation of a central council which will 
co-ordinate the work of the different relief organi- 
zations. 

672. Amendment to the Cities and Villages Act 
providing that cities and villages shall have power 
to regulate and inspect electrical appliances. 

719. A bill providing for the illumination of 
license plates on automobiles. 

742. Bill which requires that a person charged 
with the violation of an ordinance shall be furnished 
with a coiiy of the information of the complaint. 

We will attempt to give you the information as 
to wdiat bills are introduced during the remainder of 
the session from week to week, in order that there

Pi'oposed Legislation Concerning the Making of Leases 
of Gty Property.

tion, which was, together with the Bill transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Finance:

Chicago, April 24, 193i.J 

To the Mayor and Alderman of the City of Chicago 

in City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — We are transmitting, herewith, a bill 
drawn bv the Corporation Counsel amending the law 
passed two years ago. changing the limitation of five 
years to twenty years, for which time leases may 
i3e made by the City Council without advertising for 
four successive weeks. 

The City is now leasing from the Board of Edu- 
cation the entire properties of the Municipal Air- 
port. Several large operating companies are very 
anxious to sub-lease hangar lots for the purpose of 
building large hangars to house their airplanes. 
On account of the rapidly increasing business at the 
Airport and the lack of facilities we desire to have 
these leases entered into and the building opera- 
tions commence at the earliest possible moment. 
Advertising for bids for a period of a month would 
seriouslv delay operations and prove embarrassing 



lo tlie City and the oiicraloi--. in lli.'il ttic City would 
not have its choice of tenants and itie old estaldished 
airplane lines would not l»f nhlc to extend their 
operations. 

The* Corporation Counsel li;i-^ drawn thf atfiiched 
hill and suggests that the City Council indicale that 
i! is desirous of having this lejiislation r-nacfed. as 
lie believes that it will JK-lp tin' bill n.ati'i-ially in its 
passage if this is done. 

If it be possible, we would suggest tliat this, jiill 
be given approval without reference to a committee.

ment at the summits between catchbasins and ad- 
joining the roadway face of the curbing shall be two 
(2) inches below the top of said curbing, and at the 
catchbasin inlets adjoining the roadway face of the 
curbing shall be eight (8) inches below the top of 
said curbing. The slope of the finished pavement 
adjoining the roadway face of said curbing shall be 
uniform from the summits to the catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement shall be an arc of a circle passing through 
the surface of the pavement adjoining the curbing 
and the surface of the pavement at the center of said 
roadway at every part of the roadway of each of said 
above specified streets between the points herein 
described. 

In all intersecting alleys herein specified at the

meters penetration and not harder than two and one- 
half (2yo) millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds 
on the material at a temperature of seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-hall 
(98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, so ob- 
tained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
When fifty (50 j grams of said refined asphalt is

mined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
centimeters at five (5) millimeters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, 
of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of live (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not les than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 



not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty {Sm) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50; grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5y2) centimeters in diam- 
eter and three and one-half (3y2) centimeters m 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) per 
cent by weight. The flux shall have a penetration of 
not less than twenty (20) millimeters, the penetra- 
tion being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with 
fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, the mate- 
rial being tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fah- 
renheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
(2) of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the 
refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heating 
the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than 
two hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees Fahr- 
enheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly agitated 
when hot by steam, air or mechanical means until 
the said mixture has become homogeneous. The 
said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, of not less than two

By unanimous consent, on motion of Alderman 



At this point in the proceedings, on motion of Alder- 
man Arvey, the regular order of business was sus- 
pended temporarily for the purpose of holding inau- 
gural ceremonies for the formal induction of Honorable 
A, J. Cermak into the office of Mayor, and the privilege 
of the floor was granted to speakers on the program. 

Alderman John S. Glai^k, acting as temporary chair- 
man, thereupon presented Honorable Emmett Whealan, 
President of the Board of Commissioners of Cook 
County, who congratulated Mr. Cermak upon his attain- 
ment of so pre-eminent a position as that of Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, and stated that he was confident 
that future relations between the city and county gov- 
ernments would be unusually harmonious. He also 
congratulated the City of Chicago on its acquisition of 
so able an administrator as Mr. Cermak. 

The Chairman next presented Honorable Robert M. 
Sweitzer, County Clerk of Cook County, who stated that 
Mr. Cermak's record as President of the Board of Com- 
missioners of Cook County during the past eight years 
gave ample assurance that he would make a splendid 
record as Mayor. 

Mr. Sweitzer thereupon presented to Mr. Cermak in 
behalf of the County Board exquisitely bound copies of 
the printed proceedings of that body for the eight years 
during which Mr. Cermak was its president. 

He presented also a gold star, embossed with the 
Corporate Seal of the City of Chicago, in behalf of

friends of Mr. Cermak, and also with a new ivory gavel 
from the Lawndale Auto Club. 

The Chairman next presented Honorable Michael L. 
Igoe, member of the South Park Commission and minor- 
ity leader in the State House of Representatives. Mr. 
Igoe commented on the rapid rise of Mr. Cermak from 
the time of his first participation in political affairs to 
the exalted position of Mayor of the fourth largest city 
of the world, and predicted a vein- successful admini- 
stration of the affairs of the City of Chicago. 

The Chairman next presented Honorable Edward F. 
Dunne, former Mayor of the City of Chicago and former 
Governor of the State of Illinois, who assured Mr. Cer- 
mak that he would have the whole-hearted support and 
co-operation of the people of Chicago in the serious 
task of restoring Chicago to moral and financial health. 

The Chairman thereupon presented Mr. Cermak's 
granddaughter, Miss Vivian Graham, who stated that 
the occasion was the happiest moment of her life. She 
introduced Mr. Cermak to the City Council, to the as- 
sembled guests and to the radio audience. 

Honorable A. J. Cermak, Mayor, thereupon read the 
following inaugural message to the City Council, which 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, April 27, igai.]" 

To tlie Honorable, the Members of the City Council of 

Chicago, Council Chamber, Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I deem it appropriate at this time to 
address you briefly on what I regard as compara- 
tively the more serious conditions in our municipal 
affairs. 

The matter which I rank first in importance is 
the present financial condition of the City of Chicago 
and its relation to the ever- increasing burden of 
taxation which is being loaded upon our citizens. In 
the last four years, the City's tax rate has increased 
from 92 Vac per hundred to 1.37c per hundred. In 
figures, the City's expenditures (including those for 
school administration) have increased from $152,- 
716,412.18 in 1927 to $171,261,262.71 in 1930. The 
general tax bills just mailed out for 1929 taxes are 
from 19 to 25 per cent higher than those of 1928. 
The progressive increase in the item of loss and 
cost in tax collections indicates a startling increase 
in forfeiture of property for nonpayment of taxes. 
and glaring instances of excessive taxation amount- 
ing practically to confiscation are unfortunately mat- 
ters of common knowledge. 

Directly, the City is without power either to 
change the existing tax laws or to more equitably 
distribute the tax burden. The first is a matter of 
legislation. The second depends upon the honest, 
intelligent and efficient administration of the legally 
constituted tax assessing and tax reviewing bodies. 

The City, however, through the combined efforts 
of its Mayor, its Council, and its Administrative De- 
partment heads can contribute materially to a re- 
duction of taxes. Of every dollar paid in taxes in 
Cook County 32.3 cents goes to the City of Chicago 
for general corporate purposes and 33.1c goes for 
the administration of its schools. Obviously, every 
dollar needlessly spent by the City adds to the tax 
burden, and every dollar properly saved by careful 
municipal administration decreases the tax burden. 
With your help and the active assistance of our de- 
partment heads, I propose to reduce the cost of our 
municipal government to tlie lowest possible mini- 



mum consistent with the elfective functioning of our 
vital municipal services. 

In order that there may be no misunderstanding 
of the conditions existing at the time I assumed of- 
fice, let me direct your attention to the present state 
of departmental appropriations. In several of the 
departments rendering essential service, the expendi- 
tures made against appropriations up to April 11th, 
exceed the proportion of the fund which it appears 
should have been spent between January 1 and April 
11; in other words, the period from January 1 to 
April 11th constitutes approximately 29% of the 
entire fiscal year and in these departments more 
than 29% of the annual appropriation has already 
been spent. 

Despite this condition, I confidently believe that 
by the elimination of incompetence, waste and the 
unnecessary duplication of services and the applica- 
tion of modern methods in ordinary use in well-or- 
dered private businesses, the City can not only func- 
tion for the remainder of the year within its un- 
expended budget balances but that a very consider- 
able salvage can be effected. I am fully aware this 
will be no easy task. I will need your help. I will 
insist upon the active and sustained co-operation of 
every department and bureau head. I shall ask and 
confidently expect to receive, the aid of disinterested 
civic-minded citizens whom I shall call upon to assist 
in this necessary reorganization of the City's busi- 
ness. To these ends I shall ask your concurrence in 
the appointment by me of a "Mayor's Advisory Com- 
mission" composed of disinterested, non-partisan 
citizens whose functions will include a thorough- 
going study of every department of the City Govern- 
ment with the definite object in view of making prac- 
tical constructive recommendations designed to ac- 
complish the following specific purposes: 

1. To consolidate the existing 32 separate depart- 
ments of the City into a smaller number of principal 
departments so as to bring about a more responsible 
and harmonious direction of the City's affairs, elimi- 
nate unnecessary employes and terminate the exist- 
ing duplication and overlapping of municipal 
services. 

2. To standardize, so far as possible, contracts 
and specifications for municipal work and supplies 
so as to invite a much wider competition than has 
heretofore existed in the letting of such contracts 
and thus obtain fairer prices for the City; to im- 
prove the City's central purchasing administration, 
by providing approved safeguards in the purchase, 
handling, delivery and accounting for supplies, mate- 
rials and equipment, and to encourage by every 
proper means a feeling in the business community 
that the City of Chicago is entitled to the same con- 
sideration in its contracts and purchases as are large 
private businesses, and that the City of Chicago on 
its part will deal fairly and honestly with the busi- 
ness public in its purchases of supplies and the let- 
ting of contracts. 

3. To co-operate with the Civil Service Commis- 
sion which I will appoint in a complete re-classifi- 
cation of the Classified Civil Service so as to do 
away with the present utter lack of logical relation- 
ship between the duties and responsibilities of many 
positions and the salaries paid to the incumbents of 
such positions; to restrict, so far as possible, the 
number of so-called "60 day" or temporary appoint- 
ees; to provide safeguards in examinations so as to 
develop a confidence in the community that Civil 
Service examinations are on the square to the end 
of inducing a better class of applicants to enter the

service; to eslablibli lines of proinoiion so that the 
provision of the Civil Service Law that vacancies in 
the service shall, v^herever practicable, be filled by 
promotional examination, shall be carried out; and 
to set high standards of service and so encourage the 
rank and file of the Civil Service employes that they 
will strive to render full, efficient and courteous 
service to the public which pays them. 

4. To install modern labor-saving devices and 
practices so as to avoid duplication and reduce ex- 
pense in water, license and special assessment billing 
and collections and related administrative services; 
to discontinue duplicating accounting and bookkeep- 
ing services through the unification under a central 
head of all such services; to provide, within the 
municipal service, for an independent auditing of all 
municipal accounts and the continuous supervision 
of budget appropriations and expenditures to the 
end that the exact condition of the City's finances 
can be determined and known by the public at any 
time. 

5. To i)rovide for the publication and publicity 
of regular reports in simplified form on the activ- 
ities, services and projects of the City Government, 
and on municipal receipts and expenditures. 

6. To canvass and study the merits of all propo- 
sals made for municipal bond issues for public im- 
provements to the end that no ill-considered or ques- 
tionable proposal shall be submitted to the electorate. 

The above six specifications are not designed to 
limit the jurisdiction of this commission, but rather 
t.o indicate the general scope of their activities and 
the nature of 1lie service expected of it. It is my 
thought that this commission should hold frequent' 
and regular meetings and follow through to accom- 
plishment a definite and progressive program along 
the lines above laid down. 

I hereby respectfully ask your concurrence in the 
appointment of the following persons as members of 
this "Mayor's Advisory Commission" : 

Mr. William R. Dawes, 

Mr. Elmer T. Stevens, 

Mr. Oscar Mayer, 

Mr. D. F. Kelly, 

Mr. Victor Olander. 

Mr. John McKinlay, 

Mrs. Kellogg Fairlsank, 

Mr. Julius F. Smietanka, 

Mr. Newton C. Farr, 

Mr. Theodore W. Robinson, 

Mr. Joseph Triner, 

Mr. Jacob M. Loeb, 

Mr. Sewell Avery, 

Mr. Barney Balaban, 

Mr. Charles E. Merriam, 

Mr. Patrick H. Joyce, 

Mr. Henry H. Porter, 

Mr. Otto Kaspar, 

Mr. Joshua D'Esposito, 

Mr. Bert A. Massee, ' 

Mr. Gordon Strong, 

Mrs. George V. Mclntyre, 

Mr. B. M. "Winston. 

Mr. Francis X. Busch, now serving the City tem- 
porarily as Corporation Counsel, has agreed to act 
gratuitously as the permanent counsel of the Mayor's 
Advisory Commission, and I also request your ap- 
proval to designate him to act with the commission 
in this capacity. 

I have purposely named on the Mayor's Advisory 
Commission a number of the same persons who were 



appointed by me while President of the Board of 
Cook County Commissioners as members of the Cook 
County Citizens Commission on Public Finance and 
Economy. I have done this in order that each com- 
mission can have inlimate knowledge of the work 
being done by the other and both can work in com- 
plete accord. The program of the County Citizens 
Commission includes a survey of all of the many 
governmentiil agencies within the County and the 
recommendation to the County Board of well-con- 
sidered proposals for legislation and perhaps con- 
stitutional amendments which will effect a perma- 
nent consolidation of the present independently- 
functioning and overlapping agencies and resulting 
saving to the taxpavers of millions nf dollars annu- 
ally. It is my thought that the Mayor's Advisory 
Commission, while dealing primarily with specific 
problems which can be accomplished without new 
legislation, will co-operate in every way possible to 
effectuate the broader program of the County Citi- 
zens Commission. In tliis connection, also, I am not 
unmindful of the fact that the previous City Council 
appointed a committee to recommend measures look- 
ing to a consolidation of existing taxing bodies in 
Cook County and it is, likewise, my thought and de- 
sire that if that committee is continued, the Mayor's 
Advisory Commission should work in complete har- 
mony with it. 

The next matter to which I wish to direct your at- 
tention, and the importance of which is recognized 
bv you and every good citizen of Chicago, is the so- 
called crime situation. I stated in my pre-election 
campaign that the minimizing of crime and the ap- 
prehension of criminals was a police problem. 
Punishment of criminals is, of course, a matter for 
the prosecuting agencies and the courts. I wish to 
repeat that statement now, and to declare that the 
administration, through its Police Department, must 
accept full responsibility for the prevention of 
crime so far as humanly possible, and for the prompt 
apprehension of offenders against the criminal laws. 
The responsibility for the conduct of the Police De- 
partment, and its administration, will be placed 
squarely upon the Commissioner of Police. He will 
not be 'interfered with in the slightest degree by 
me. I shall insist that he does not permit himself to 
he interfered with by anyone else. He will be 
judged solely by the results he accomplishes, and I 
shall not hesitate to reorganize the department at 
any time when I shall be convinced that it is not 
functioning efficiently. I shall direct the Commis- 
sioner of Police to co-operate fully with the official 
law-enforcing agencies and to welcome and en- 
courage the assistance of voluntary civic agencies 
which are honestly endeavoring to aid in the appre- 
hension of criminals and the rigid and equal en- 
forcement of the law. I invite particularly the co- 
operation of the prosecuting officials in an effort to 
make the collection by the police of the evidence 
of crimes more effective to secure convictions. 
■While the police and crime problem is a most diffi- 
cult one, I am confident that with the Mayor, the 
Commissioner of Police, the Civil Service Commis- 
sion, your Committee on Police and Municipal In- 
stitutions, and the other official and unofficial agen- 
cies working unitedly and earnestly to a common pur- 
pose, we can well before 1933, when the Century of 
Progress Exposition is held, present to the World a 
City, well governed and well ordered, and with a 
record for the suppression and prompt punishment 
of lawlessness equal to that of any other large city 
in the United States. 

And this brings me naturally to that epoch-mak- 
ing event in Chicago's history, — the celebration of 



Ai.ni .'/, ii>;n. 



INAUGURAL CEHEMONIES. 



91 



its hundredth anniversary as a municipality — its 
"Century of Progress" Exposition to be held in Chi- 
cago in 1933. The success of this Exposition means 
much to Chicago. Important public works, great 
philanthropic enterprises, vast private undertakings 
must be completed by 1933 in anticipation of this 
event. Your Honorable Body has created a standing 
committee to deal with the many problems which 
the Council will have to pass upon in connection 
with the celebration of this, our first centennial. 
The first unit of the subway as provided by the 
recently passed traction ordinance, must be pushed 
to completion. Important street widenings, still un- 
completed, must be finished. The new Post Office 
must be built. The new Rosenwa-ld Industrial Mu- 
seum must be finished and equipped. The various 
exposition buildings, already well under way, must 
be ready to receive the exhibits which will be sent 
from all parts of the World. 

Vigorous constructive efforts should be made 
through your proper committees, with the co-opera- 
tion of the Department of Public Works and Board 
of Local Improvements, to put through the streets 
made possible by the straightening of the Chicago 
River, and to bring about the construction of a 
unified railway terminal in that area for the greater 
convenience of the hundreds of thousands of people 
who will visit us during the Exposition. In these 
endeavors, I pledge you my active assistance, and 
the aid of every agency I can command. 

Every effort must also be made through the en- 
listment of our numerous splendid and efficient civic 
organizations to make known to the World that 
Chicago's traditional spirit of accomplishment which 
made the 1893 World's Fair the greatest event of its 
kind, either before or since, is again actively at 
work to make Chicago's 1933 World's Fair eclipse it 
in cultural value, in magnificence and in beauty. 
We want the World to know that Chicago, reborn 
in civic pride, in determination, and in inspiration 
for worthwhile progress, extends her invitation to 
people everywhere to enjoy the hospitality of the 
middlewest's great metropolis, which in a hundred 
years has emerged from a settlement of less than 
200 people to what we will be prepared in 1933 to 
prove is the best governed, the safest and the most 
beautiful City in the World. 

'May I be pardoned for one other observation of 
more immediate concern. The week of May 10th to 
May 20th has been designated as "Chicago Jubilee 
Week", during which, by appropriate ceremonies. 
Chicago will celebrate the determination of its civic, 
business, and industrial leaders, to do evervthing 
possible through co-operative effort, to stimulate a 
revival of trade and industry and interest in Chi- 
cago. I have already pledged my active assistance 
to this movement, and respectfully solicit the aid of 
your Honorable Body and of all the departments and 
bureaus of the City Government to a like purpose. 

In conclusion, may I make just a few rather per- 
sonal observations. 

I want it known that I fully appreciate the tre- 
mendous responsibilities imposed upon me by the 
unprecedented vote of jconfidence which I rec&ived 
from the people of Chicago on April 7th- last. I 
realize, too, my own limitations. Alone and unaided, 
I can accomplish little. With the support and help 
which I ask for, I think I can do a great deal. I 
am not afraid of hard work. I regard the Mayor's 
office as a "full-time job", claiming and entitled to 
the best I have in me. I shall devote all of my 



time and thought to the discharge of its obligation.s. 
I expect everyone in the City's service, from dej^art- 
ment head to the humblest employe, to do the same. 
By law I am not only Mayor but a member of the 
City Council. I oxpecf to perform my duty as such 
member. I shall sit in with the Finance and other 
committees on important measures for the two-fold 
purpose of informing myself on the details of such 
measures and to lend whatever aid my experience 
and counsel may be to the other members of the 
Conunittee. I must have the co-operation of the 
City Council if we are to accomplish anything of 
lasting good for our beloved City. I have received, 
I think, the personal assurance of every elected al- 
derman that I can count on such co-operation. This 
voluntary and sincerely meant expression of confi- 
dence and good will inspires me to look forward to 
four years of pleasant and treasured association. I 
shall also initiate the practice of meeting regularly 
and frequently with the heads of City Departmpnfs. 
and the Chairmen of Council Committees so that I 
may be kept in intimate touch with every branch of 
the City service and discuss suggestions for improved 
administration. 

I have always been a believer in the practice of 
enlisting disinterested, specially equipped and non- 
partisan citizens to aid in the solution of public 
problems. Some of the most effective public service 
of which I have knowledge has been accomplished 
by such groups. I expect to call frequentlv upon 
this citizenship during my term as Mayor, 'it is a 
source of great gratification to me that I have re- 
ceived from literally thousands of our citizens, with- 
out regard to party, nationality, race or creed, offers 
to assist in any way possible in the rejuvenation and 
development of our great City. 

It has been impossible in this message to even 
mention many of the important tasks ahead of us. 
At subsequent meetings of Your Honorable Body 
and at an early date, I shall ask the privilege of in- 
viting your specific attention to them. 



Respectfully submitted.

Gentlemen — On July 29, 1930, there was passed 
by Your Honorable Body, a contract ordinance grant- 
ing a franchise, upon certain stipulations, terms and 
conditions, to the Illinois Bell Telephone Company. 

It appears in the records that the ordinance was 
held by the Mayor until the next regular meeting of 
the Council, November 5, 1930, at which time it was 
vetoed, and on November 24, 1930. re-referred to the 
Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light for con- 
sideration, where it is now pending.

JOURNAI^—CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



May 6, 1931. 



Under a previous ordinance fhe telephone company 
paid to the City of Chicago for use of its streets, a 
compensation of three per cent of the gross revenue 
of its telephone operation of its plant and property 
within the City of Chicago, which constituted a very 
considerable item in the revenue of the City of Chi- 
cago derived from sources other than taxes. 

Since the expiration of the former ordinance no 
compensation has been paid to the City. 

It is my understanding that the position taken by 
the Telephone Company is that it will not pay any 
compensation for the use of streets by it since the 
expiration of the old ordinance until a new ordi- 
nance is agreed upon, but that it stands willing to 
have any provision it may make relative to future 
compensation, relate back to the date of the expira- 
tion of the former ordinance. 

Assuming that a new ordinance could be agreed 
upon between the Telephone Company and the City 
which would provide for substantially the same 
compensation as the old ordinance, this w^ould mean 
a collection of revenue for past use of streets by the 
Telephone Company in the neighborhood of five mil- 
lion dollars. 

T think it is highly desirable that -the rights and 
obligations of this public utility company and the 
City be established at the earliest possible moment, 
and I would respectfully suggest that your Com- 
mittee on Gas, Oil and Electricity resume immediate 
negotiations with the Illinois Bell Telephone Com- 
pany directed to an agreement upon a satisfactory 
ordinance, which can be reported back to Your Hon- 
orable Body. 

Respectfully submitted,

In the Matter ot" the Removal of Street Railway Tracks 

East of Lake Shore Drive between E. Chicago 

Av. and E. Grand Av. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

Department of Law,) 
Chicago, May 6, 1931.J 

To the Honorable, the Members of the City Council 
of Chicago, Council Chamber, Chicago: 
Gentlemen — There was lately prepared by First 
Assistant Corporation Counsel Leon iHornstein, a 
letter to Your Honorable Body concerning the use 
by the 'Chicago Surface Lines of a strip of land 
lying between Chicago and Grand avenues east 
of Lake Shore drive for street railway purposes. 
This letter was given premature publicity which 
has resulted in my receiving a number of protests 
from members of Your Honorable Body against the 
City taking any position calculated to take up 
existing street railway tracks or limit street rail- 
way facilities in this area. 

In view of this situation I deem it my duty to 
state to you, without conclusion, the respective 
positions taken by the Lincoln Park Board and the 
Chicago Surface Lines so that you may have both 
sides of the matter before you. 

The sending of a communication at this time is 
prompted by the fact that there is pending before 
the Illinois Commerce Commission, petition for a 
rehearing on an order entered by the Commission 
on November 18, 1926. 

In the year 1913, when the City was about to 
construct the Municipal Pier now known as Navy 
■Pier, it secured the passage of an Act of the Gen- 
'■ eral Assembly which enlarged its powers with re- 
spect to harbors, piers, etc., and gave it certain 
rights in submerged lands. Under Section 3a of 
said act (Smith-Hurd's 1929 Statutes, p. 473), 
power was given to the City to 

"hold and use any submerged lands of the State 
of Illinois filled in or reclaimed by such city or 
village in connection with or in construction of 
any harbor or utility for the uses and purposes 
provided for in the said Act hereby amended, and 
may lease any such lands for a period not longer 
than fifty years to any person, firm or corporation 
upon such terms and conditions as shall be pre- 
scribed by ordinance, but any such ordinance 
shall provide that the rental value of such lands 
shall be revalued at or about the end of each 
ten years of the rental period of any such leas- 
ing and that the rental for the ensuing ten years 
shall be adjusted and fixed in accordance with 
such revaluation." 

The City obtained its rights in this strip by 
virtue of the statute just referred to and the filling 
in of the land. The Lincoln Park Board asserts an 
interest therein by reason of the boulevard run- 
ning along side of it and its agreement with the 
property owners who claim riparian rights. No 
lease of this strip has been granted to the Chicago 
Surface Lines by the City of Chicago and it is 
claimed by the attorney for the Lincoln Park Board 



that the company's occupation of this strip is con- 
trary to law. 

The records show that the Chicago avenue ex- 
tension tracks were laid pursuant to orders entered 
by the Illinois Public Utilities Commission on May 
3, and May 20, 1921, in Case No. 11596, and to an 
ordinance passed by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago on May 20, 1921 (Council Proceedings 
1921-1922, p. 241). 

These tracks were constructed, I am informed, in 
accordance with plans submitted to and approved 
by the Public Utilities Commission and the Com- 
missioner of Public Works of the City of Chicago, 
which called for a permanent type of construction. 

The Commissioners of Lincoln Park on August 
23. 1924, filed a petition with the Illinois Commerce 
Commission asking for an order directing the Chi- 
cago Railways Company to cease operation of and 
to remove the tracks across and along Lake Shore 
drive. On November 18, 1926, the Commission 
entered an order denying the petition of the Lin- 
coln Park Commissioners, and in this order it was 
found and declared: 

"That the construction of the Chicago avenue 
extension involved a capital expenditure of over 
$60,000.00. Upon this the company is entitled to 
a reasonable return from rates of fare to be 
charged. If this extension were to be abandoned 
its cost either would have to continue in the 
capital account or be amortized out of earnings — 
that is from fares charged. 

If a substitute line were ordered, there would 
be a further capital expenditure, again to be re- 
flected in rates of fares. 

In either situation the street car rider would 
be called upon to pay for or provide a return 
upon the cost of the original extension no longer 
available to him for travel and in the alternative 
situation presented he would be called upon to 
pay in addition a return upon the cost of a sub- 
stitute line which would give him less adequate 
service. 

It would require a very strong showing which 
would warrant the imposition of such a burden 
upon the street car riders of Chicago unless the 
car riders themselves were directly benefited 
either in safety or service. No such showing has 
been made, and the. Commission is of the opinion 
that the petitioners made out no case for the 
establishment of any substitute line. 

That 'The real issue which we have to decide 
and to which the bulk of the testimony was 
directed is presented by the averment in, the 
petition that there is no longer any necessity for 
the maintenance or operation of the Chicago 
avenue street railway extension'. 

That 'The overwhelming weight of the evidence 
establishes beyond serious controversy that the 
Chicago avenue street railway extension is a 
public convenience and necessity, and that its 
removal would be opposed to the welfare and 
interests of the general public as well as to the 
business and industrial interests in the district 
served by it, and would take away transportation 
facilities necessary to enable large numbers of 
people to reach the lake and the municipal pier 
for health, entertainment, educational and recre- 
ational purposes'. 

That the street railway tracks extending from 
Chicago avenue across and down the easterly side 
of the Lake Shore drive to Ohio street extended..

and from thence to or near the west entrance of 
the municipal pier in the City of Chicago, and 
commonly referred to as the Chicago avenue ex- 
tension, were constructed by the Chicago Rail- 
ways Company pursuant to an order of the Public 
Utilities Commission of the State of Illinois en- 
tered in this cause No. 11596 on May 20, 1921. 

That said extension was ordered in response to 
a public demand and to meet public require- 
ments. 

That said extension as originally constructed 
was and as since maintained is of the permanent 
type employed in the construction of street rail- 
ways in the City of Chicago. 

That said extension was constructed with the 
full knowledge and acquiescence of the Commis- 
sioners of Lincoln Park. 

That said extension is a part of the street rail- 
way system of the Chicago Railways Company, 
which is being operated in conjunction with the 
other street railways in Chicago as a unified sys- 
tem under the designation of the Chicago Surface 
Lines which furnishes transportation throughout 
the City for a single fare. 

That the continued maintenance and operation 
of said extension is required in the interest of 
public necessity and convenience. 

That the removal or abandonment of said ex- 
tension would be adverse to the welfare and in- 
terests of the public." 

As above stated, a petition for a rehearing was 
subsequently filed by the Lincoln Park Commis- 
sioners and the matter is now on further hearing 
before the Illinois Commerce Commission. 

The City of Chicago is being asked by the Lin- 
coln Park Commissioners to enter its appearance 
and join with the Lincoln Park Commissioners in 
an effort to have these tracks removed and this 
strip of land vacated by the Chicago Surface Lines, 

It is claimed by the Lincoln Park Commissioners 
that the Chicago Surface Lines make no use of this 
land which is of any value to the public; that the 
number of passengers carried to the Navy Pier over 
the Chicago avenue line is so small as almost to be 
negligible; that the few cars on the Chicago avenue 
line which run to the pier could be re-routed for a 
few blocks over Grand avenue without incon- 
venience either to the traction company or to the 
public; that the obstruction of traffic on the boule- 
vard is great and will be much greater when the 
outer boulevard link bridge is completed. 

On the other hand it is asserted by the Surface 
Lines and it has been stated by a number of mem- 
bers of Your Honorable Body that thousands of 
people on the north, west and south sides will be 
prevented from easy and convenient access to the 
Navy Pier if the tracks are removed and the 
present transportation facilities are interfered with. 

It is because of the highly controversial character 
of this matter that I have addressed this letter to 
Your Honorable Body, and I will await the outcome 
of your consideration of it before taking any action 
in the premises. We have a legal right and it 
would be perfectly proper for the City to intervene 
in this matter and advance whatever position Your 
Honorable Body sees fit to take in the matter. 

Respectfully submitted,

In the Matter of Legislation Affecting fhe City of Chicjago 
Introduced in the 57th General A.ssernbly. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Judiciary 
and State Legislation: 

Department of Law^.I 
Chicago, April 28, 19.31.1 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Since advising you in regard to the 
status of legislation at the present session of the 
General Assembly, the following, among other bills, 
in which the City seems to have a special interest, 
have been introduced: 

Senate Bills. 

469. This bill seeks to regulate retail dealers in 
cigars, cigarettes and cigarette wrappers, papers and 
tubes. It seems to affect the City of Chicago prin- 
cipally with respect to its cigarette dealers licensing 
powers. These would be taken away from the City, 
and it is questionable whether the City would be 
able to regulate cigarette dealers in any way if the 
bill becomes a law. 

470. Amendment to the Municipal Court Act. 
The bill provides that the City Council shall divide 
the City into districts, and that some of the judges 
shall be elected within the districts instead of from 
the City at large. It will require a referendum. 

473. This provides for an amendment to the City 
Civil Service Act under which laborers upon streets 
and alleys may be discharged from the classified 
service without presenting charges, but such labor- 
ers so discharged are given priority rights of re- 
instatement. 

475. Amendment to Juul Law which does not 
seem to materially affect the City of Chicago, buL 
raises the county rate somewhat. 

House Bills. 

814. Amendment to a municipal court law in- 
volving changes in classes of action and enlarging 
the powers of the court with respect to injuries to 
feal property. It also authorizes ten assistants 
instead of five assistants to the Chief Justice. It 
changes the manner of nominating judges and re- 
quires them to be nominated by convention. There 
are other changes with respect to terms of office of 
'bailiff and clerk and the years in which they are to 
be elected and the manner of filling vacancies. 

817. This is another bill providing for semi- 
annual payment of taxes. 

818. Amendment to Cities and Village Act pro- 
viding for the licensing and regulation of soft drink 
parlors, soft drink manufacturers, restaurants, lunch 
counters, sandwich shops, baking houses, meal 
markets, fruit stores, vegetable stores, bakeries and 
manufacturers' agents. 

821. This bill proposes the creation of a commis- 
sion to make investigation of the rates which are 
being charged by public utilities and the amount of 
their annual earnings, 

837. Amendment to the Municipal Pension Law 
providing for changes in the tax rate which increases 
the rate slightly. Provides also for somewhat dif- 
ferent distribution of the money upon the death of 
an employe and some changes with respect to dis- 
ability allowances. 

848. Amendment to Sections 1 and 3 of the Fire- 



100 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



May 6, 1931. 



men's Pension lAict. Slightly increases the tax rate 
and makes changes with regard to the status of 
future entrants in the service. 

896. Amendment io Cities and Villages Act pro- 
viding that moneys received from municipally owned 
public utilities may be placed in a special fund for 
the use and operation of such public utilily. The 
surplus to be used for retiring indebtedness. 

897. An amendment to the Local Improvement 
Act which validates the compensation paid to cer- 
tain officers and employes wbere it is not in excess 
of the ordinance allowance but is in excess of the 
6% authorized under the Act. 

902. Amends Public Utility Act so as to include 
municipal corporations within its terms. 

903. Amendment of Section 55 of Article IV of 
the Public Utilities Act in such a way that the pro- 
visions of such section shall not be construed to 
deprive cities or villages of the right to grant 
franchises and licenses to public utilities to operate 
with or without compensation to such municipalities. 
It appears to validate or provides for what are 
known as contract ordinances whereby rates may 
be agreed upon between the City and the utility 
corporation. 

905. Amendment fo Section 8 of Article I of the 
Public Utilities Act to the effect that nothing in the 
Act shall be construed to confer upon the Illinois 
Commerce Commission supervision or jurisdiction 
over the operations, rates and service of public 
utilities to take the place of those effective within 
corporate limits of cities and villages. 

907. Amendment to iMunicipal Public Utility Act 
of 1913, which provides that in lieu of the issuance 
of bonds or certificates or the levy of taxes, the 
City may provide for or secure the payment of 
purchase extension or imiprovement of a public 
utility by pledging or otherwise hypothecating the 
net earnings or profits derived therefrom. 

For your further information and guidance, we 



send herewith a copy of the legislative synopsis 
and digest No. 12 which includes a record of actions 
on all bills and resolutions received up to April 13 
1931. 

Yours truly.

any such city, or the Board of Trustees of 
any such village, such proposal to sell or 
lease for any term in excess of [five] twenty 
years shall be published in one of its daily 
or weekly papers once each week for four 
successive weeks, the first publication to be 
not less than thirty days before the day pro- 
vided in said notice for the opening of bids 
for said property. Such notice shall con- 
tain an accurate description of such property, 
the purpose for which it is used, and at what 
meeting the bids will be considered and 
opened, and shall advertise for bids there- 
for. All such bids shall be opened only at a 
regular meeting of such City Council or Board 
of Trustees, and shall be accepted only upon 
a vote of three-fourths of the members of 
such City Council or Board of Trustees; Pro- 
vided, however, that the City Council or Board 
of trustees may, by a majority vote, reject 
any and all bids. 

Section 2. Whereas the City of Chicago has 
negotiated leases for periods of twenty years 
with parties desiring to occupy space at its 



municipal airport and the advantages for the 
said city contained in said leases would be lost 
if the ordinances authorizing such leases could 
not be put into effect until after advertising of 
same as now required by law, therefore an 
emergency exists, and this Act shall take effect 
upon its passage. 

Respectfully submitted,

"The General Assembly shall provide such reve- 
nue as may be needful by levying a tax, by valua- 
tion, so that every person and corporation shall 
pay a tax in proportion to the v&lue of his, her 
or its property"; 

and 

Whereas, It is generally agreed and conceded that 
real estate, as a commodity, is bearing an unwar- 
ranted, disproportionate and unfair portion of the 
tax burden of the City of Chicago — economists and 
tax experts stating that real estate bears an amount 
substantially exceeding 80% of the general property 
tax and in addition special assessments; and 

Whereas, Substantial personal property is and 
has for many years last past been escaping its just. 
proportionate and lawful tax burden; and "

JOURNAL— CITY COUNGII^CHICAGO. 



May 6, 1931. 



Whereas, This situation is in a measure partly 
responsible for the chaotic financial condition m 
which Chicago now finds itself, with the imminent 
danger that there will not be sufficient funds to 
permit the operation of necessary functions of mu- 
nicipal government and pay the salaries of police- 
men, firemen and school teachers; and 

Whereas This condition, if suffered to continue, 
will result, as it already has resulted in thousands 
of cases in the shattering of real estate values and 
equities' in the loss of confidence by the investing 
public in all real estate securities, in the cessation 
of consequential building operations, in the loss of 
employment to thousands of our citizens and tax 
payers, and is contributing greatly to the preven- 
tion of the return of prosperity to Chicago; and 

Whereas, It is both deisrable and necessary for 
the best welfare of our city and its people that 
immediate steps be taken to correct this situation; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Committee on Efficiency, Con- 
solidation and Reorganization, be and it is hereby 
directed to make a comprehensive study of the situa- 
tion heretofore referred to, proceed to take sucn 
evidence as it deems necessary, and to report its 
conclusions and findings to the City Council at the 
earliest possible time. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee.

Direction for the Discontinuance of the Unlawful 
Display of Automobile Stars, Etc. 

Alderman Hodes presented the following resolution: 
Whereas, The ordinances of the City of Chicago 
prescribe by whom, and in what manner auto- 
mobile stars are to be displayed; and 

Whereas, In disregard of the ordinances of ttie 
Citv of Chicago tens of thousands of automobile 
stars have been distributed by extra-legal organi- 
zations, and are now carried by automobiles; and 

Whereas, There is no practical use for auto- 
mobile stars, except to evade the penalties for the 
violation of traffic regulations; and 

Whereas, Such use is substantially tantamount 
to a public nuisance; and 

Whereas, The possession of automobile stars and 
their display on automobiles encourages the vio- 
lation of traffic rules and creates distinction and 
classes between private citizens owning and driving 
motor vehicles, confuses the public mmd, tends to 
disrupt and bring into disrepute official responsi- 
bility, and militates against the general welfare and 
public good, and is an unwholesome gesture of legal 
favoritism; therefore, be it hereby 

Resolved, That the Commissioner of Police be 
directed and is hereby directed to advise all extra- 
legal agencies issuing automobile stars ol tne 
illegality of their acts, request all owners of auto- 
mobiles carrying and displaying such stars to re- 
move them (except as permitted by City ordinance 
heretofore enacted) and to take such other steps as 
will effectively insure the immediate discontinuance 
of the practice.

Direction for the Withholding of Permits for 
Carnivals in Certain Cases. 

Alderman Toman presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, Carnivals are frequently conducted 
under the guise of charity, when the individuals 
operating such enterprises are the sole or principal 
beneficiaries; and 

Whereas, During the present depression in busi- 
ness and industry, such carnivals are injurious to 
legitimate business and small retail stores in the 
neighborhoods in which they may be conducted; 
and 

Whereas, The merchants and other business 
establishments throughout the City of Chicago have 
been contributing liberally of their funds for the 



relief of the unemployed and similar charities; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Commissioner of Police be 
and he is hereby requested not to grant permits 
for the conduct of carnivals in the City of Chicago 
during the remainder of the year 1931, where the 
said carnivals are operated or conducted by pro- 
fessional promoters.

said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Toman moved to adopt said resolution.

Proposed Regulation of the Time for the Delivery of 
Milk, Etc., to Homes. 

Alderman Toman presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, Specialists who are in a position to 
know, state that city noise is one of the leading 
causes of nervous disorders, and that its elimination 
would prolong the average life of the city dweller 
about seven years, and at the same time materially 
increase individual and community efficiency; and 

Whereas, All unusual noises prevent the grelit 
working population of the City of Chicago from 
enjoying their sleep and rest in perfect quiet dur- 
ing the night time, and as a result such individuals 
do not receive the proper amount of sleep and con- 
sequently break down prematurely and are unable 
to compete in their daily labor and occupations 
with those who have the necessary amount of sleep; 
and 

Whereas, The delivery of milk during the early 
morning hours is a source of much annoyance and 
irritation to the average Chicagoan, due to the 
noises made by the rumbling wheels of milk 
wagons, the running feet of milkmen, and the 
sharp clatter of the exchange of the empty milk 
bottles for the full bottles, as well as the lengthy 
and animated discussions of drivers meeting in the 
early morning hours, particularly in residence dis- 
tricts during the present season of open windows, 
and is injurious to the health and well-being of the 
workers of this great City; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Committee on Health of this 
Council be and it is hereby directed to prepare an 
ordinance providing that no person, firm or cor- 
poration shall make any delivery of milk, cream or 
other dairy products, where the same are to be 
used as food, during the period of time beginning 
on May 1st of each year, up to and including 
September 30th of the same year, before six o'clock 
in the morning of the day of delivery. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Toman moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed. 



Death of Anthony Ruthy and Patrick Durkin. 

Alderman Toman presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, The recent tragedy which resulted in

two of the City's policemen, at the hands of law- 
less bandits who infest the City, has shocked the

community and caused profound sorrow at the loss 
of these brave defenders; and 

Whereas, The conduct of these civic officers who 
lost their lives in the discharge of their duty ranks 
with the devotion and courage of our soldiers on 
the field of battle; and 

Whereas, The wave of indignation and resent- 
ment which is passing over the people of the City 
at this distressing event should have official ex- 
pression and a record in the archives of the City; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
■Chicago, on behalf of the people of the City, hereby 
voices its sorrow and the grief and regret of the 
community on account of the death of its two brave 
police officers, Anthony Ruthy and Patrick Durkin, 
who gave their lives in the defense of the people 
of this City and State, and whose example will 
strengthen the arm of the law and will tend to 
- uphold and reinforce the work of other officers of 
the law who are striving to bring about the 
triumph of law and order over crime and lawless- 
ness; be it further 

Resolved, That the heartfelt sympathy of the 
members of the City Council is hereby extended to 
the bereaved families of the said two officers in 
their hour of sorrow, and that the thanks of the 
people of the City of Chicago are due and are 
hereby extended to them by reason of the sacrifice 
of these two lives on the altar of civic righteous- 
ness; and, be it further 

Resolved, That the City Clerk is hereby directed 
to prepare a copy of these resolutions suitably en- 
grossed for each of the said families, and to present 
such copies to the said families of the two faithful 
officers named herein. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 
Alderman Toman moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed unanimously by a rising vote.

In the Matter of the Completion of the Reorganization 
Plan for Traction Securities, Etc. 

In connection with the foregoing ordinance. Alder- 
man Bowler presented the following communications, 
■which were ordered published and placed on file: 



Chicago, May 5, 1931. 

Committee on Local Transportation, Chicago City 
Council, City Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 

Alderman James B. Bowler, Chairman. 

Gentlemen — The time within which Chicago 
Local Transportation Company is required to ac- 
cept the 1930 Traction Ordinance expires on the 
22nd inst. The Company has made every possible 
effort to be in a position to accept the Ordinance in 
accordance with its terms within the time granted 
to us, but, owing to delays imposed upon us by 
litigation over which we have no control, we find 
that we will not be able to do so. 

We have been advised by Halsey, Stuart & Co., 
Reorganizer Manager, that the financial plan for the 
acquisition of the properties of Chicago Rapid Tran- 
sit Company, Chicago City Railway Company, Calu- 
met and South Chicago Railway Company, The 
Southern Street Railway Company and Chicago Rail- 
ways Company has been signed by all of the com- 
mittees who are parties thereto and has been de- 
clared operative; also that there are sufficient 
securities available under the Plan to acquire the 
properties of these several companies. 

There are, however, now pending in the United 
States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Seventh 
Circuit three appeals from the order entered by the 
District Court of the United States for the Northern 
District of Illinois on November 26, 1930. These 
appeals were taken by Orville E. Babcock, et al., Sid- 
ney F. Tyler, et al. and Harrison B. Riley, et al. 
Notwithstanding these appeals, 'there has been the 
utmost harmony amongst the committees signatory 
to the Plan, and we have had the utmost of co- 
operation from their counsel, and decrees of sale of 
the properties of the Surface Lines have been pre- 
sented to the District Court of the United States for 
the Northern District of Illinois, which have been 
taken under advisement by the Court. In the event 
of dissatisfaction with the final decrees of sale or 
with the financial plan under which the properties 
may be purchased, there may be further appeals, 
which will unavoidably delay the final consumma- 
tion of the Plan until these appeals are decided, 
which may not be until the end of the present cal- 
endar year. Several other actions have been started 
and are pending in the State Courts which further 
complicate the situation and are delaying the final 
acceptance of the Ordinance. 

On last Friday a suit in quo warranto was in- 
stitued by the Attorney General of Illinois, in which 
the validity of the enabling legislation of 1929 and 
of the Traction Ordinance of 1930 will be deter- 
mined as speedily as practicable. We are advised 
by our counsel that, notwithstanding every effort 
which will be made to expedite this litigation, a 
decision by the Supreme Court of Illinois cannot 
reasonably be expected earlier than December next, 
and may be delayed until January, 1932. It is our 
purpose to accept the Ordinance at the very earliest 
moment practicable, and we believe that nothing 
now stands in the way except the litigation above 
referred to. We assure you that we have done 
everything possible up to the present time to enable 
us to comply with the Traction Ordinance of 1930, 
and that we will proceed to do everything in our 
power to hasten the ultimate" acquisition of the 
properties and the acceptance of the Ordinance. For 
the reason stated we are, however, reluctantly com- 
pelled to ask the City Council of the City of Chicago 
for a further extension of time within which the 
Ordinance is to be accepted, and we respectfully

January 31, 1932. 

Very truly yours, 

Chicago Local Transportation Coaipany,

Chicago, May 5, 1931. 

Chicago Local Transportation Company, 209 South 
La Salle Street, Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to your inquiry, we advise 
that the financial plan for the acquisition of the 
properties of Chicago Rapid Transit Company, Chi- 
cago City Railway Company, Calumet and South Chi- 
cago Railway Company, The Southern Street Rail- 
way Company and Chicago Railways Company has 
been signed by all of the committees who are parties 
thereto and has been declared operative; also that 
ther are sufficient securities available under the 
Plan to acquire the properties of these several com- 
panies. 

Yours very truly, 

Halsey, Stuart & Co., 
Reorganization Manager. 



Report of PW)gress of Construction Work (Elevated 
Railroad and Street Railway Lines). 

Alderman Bowler presented the following communi- 
cation, which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Chicago, May 4, 1931. 

Honorable James B. Bowler, Chairman, Committee 
on Local Transportation, City Council of Chicago, 
Chicago, Illinois: 

Dear iMr. Chairman — In accordance with your 
request today for information as to the progress of 
work authorized by the supplemental ordinance of 
July 16, 1930, we beg to make the following state- 
ment: 

The estimated cost of work completed or in 
progress to date on both the elevated and surface 
lines amounts to approximately $6,400,000.00'. In 
addition to this the Chicago Surface Lines, as you 
have been advised, completed in 1930 an installation 
of trolley bus extensions (50.97 miles) which are 
not included in the above amount, amounting to 
approximately $1,300,000.00. 

The extensions of street car lines and motor 
vehicle routes, completed and in operation prior to 
April 1, 1931, including the 50.97 miles of motor 
vehicle extensions before mentioned, have added a 
total of 70.72 miles of new transportation to the 
system during the past year. In addition of this, 
19.04 miles are now in progress. One hundred 
fourteen trolley buses have been purchased by the 
Surface Lines and are now, or soon will be, in 
operation on the extensions. 

Under the terms of the ordinance approved by 
the people on July 1st, the Surface Lines is. re- 
quired to construct a minimum of 30 miles of 
single track street railway and/or single way 
motor vehicle line extensions per year during the 
first ten-year period beginning with the acceptance 
of the ordinance by the new company. Without 
waiting for that acceptance the Surface Lines con- 
structed during the past year more than double 
the amount of the extensions required for a single 
year. 



The Chicago Surface Lines and tiie Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company are continuing to make 
excellent progress in the planning and engineering 
work connected with the program of extensions 
provided for under the ordinance and with the 
engineering work involved in the connections and 
equipment of the subways. 

Condemnation proceedings for the acquirement of 
the necessary property have been going forward, 
as well as the obtaining of necessary frontage con- 
sents, and the work will be prosecuted with as 
much expedition as conditions will permit. 

(Signed) Britton I. Budd, 

President, Chicago Rapid Transit Company. 

(Signed) Guy A. Richardson, 

Vice-President, Chicago Surface Lines.

"Youth Week" Proclamation, 

The City Clerk presented the following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, May 11, 1931. J 

YOUTH WEEK PROCLAMATION. 

For eleven years Chicago has been celebrating 
Boys Week, leading all the cities of America in 
honoring its growing lads; likewise at different times 
It has held Girls' Week, with notably successful pro- 
grams. Now the civic and industrial and educational 
leaders of Chicago have seen fit to unite the two 
and stage a gigantic demonstration oa behalf of all 



its 1,000,000 boys and girls under the name "Youth 
Week", May 17th to 23rd. 

In this worthy and far-visioned undertaking, Chi- 
cago again demonstrates its faculty for leadership, 
its willingness to enter new fields for human wel- 
fare, its affection for its youth, and its intense 
humanness in spite of the rush and swirl of every 
day life. It also sets the pace for a new movement 
that doubtless will spread to hundreds of other cities 
in years to come, where present Boys' and Girls' 
Week programs will be enlarged to encompass both 
under the name of Youth Week. 

With a program laid out which will consider Chi- 
cago Youth in all its activities and interests, in the 
home, church, school and in industry, at work and 
at play, and in matters of health, talent and am- 
bition, hundreds of thousands will have an active 
part in the programs which will center in the forty 
major communities making up Chicago. 

In view of the notable plans for honoring 3-outb, 
revealing its achievements and talents and am- 
bitions; in consideration of the leadership which is 
developing the programs; and because of mv owti 
love for and faith in Chicago's boys and girls and 
my desire above all else to aid them in development 
of body, mind and character, and in attaining the 
goal of their dreams, I, Anton J. Cermak, .Alayor of 
Chicago, take pleasure in proclaiming Mav 17th to 
23rd Youth Week in Chicago, and respectfully urge 
organizations, institutions and individuals to take 
part in it according to their ability and opportunity.

caUon. which was ordered published and referred to 
the CmiHTiittee on Gas, Oil and Electricity: 

Chicago Federation of Labor,] 
Chicago, 'May 7, 1931. f 

AN OPEN LETTER 

To the Honorable Mauor, Anton J. Cermak, and the 
Members of the City Council of Chicago: 
Greetings— On November 20. 1930, tiic Cliicago 
Federation of Labor addressed a communication to 
the iMayor and the members of the City Council, - 
calling- attention to a resolution which was unani- 
mously adopted by the Federation, protesting against 
the adoption of the telephone franchise being con- 
sidered at that time. 

Inasmuch as the Committee on Gas, Oil and Elec- 
tric Light will meet tomorrow, Friday, May 8th, to 
draft a new ordinance, Labor is again submitting its 
objection to a contemplated telephone franchise. 

The Illinois Bell Telephone Company is a subsi- 
diary of the American Telephone and Telegraph 
Company of Wall street. New York City, which is 
ever demanding an increase in rates m every town, 
county and state, including our government at Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

Just a few facts about this monster octopus; its 
capital stock, in 1917, was, increased from $20,000,000 
to $50,000,00'0. Again, in 1920, from $&0,00'0,000 o 
$200 000,000. Again, in 19:i7, from $200,000,000 to 
$300'0OO,000. Then, in 1928, just a year thereafter, 
it increased its capital stock from $300,000,000 to 
$1,320,309,300. Its total resources are $3,o00',00O,000. 
Its funded indebtedness is only $535,772,498. Its 
surplus and reserve is $1,117,735,192.99. 

The American Telephone and Telegraph Company 
—the Bell Telephone Trust— is the most powerful 
monopoly in the world. 

The American Telephone & Telegraph Company 
owns 99.1 per cent of the stock of the Illinois Bell 
Telephone Company. Therefore, when the Illinois 
Bell Telephone Company asks the City Council ot the 
City of Chicago for a franchise, it is not the Illinois 
Bell Telephone Company which is to get that fran- 
chise but the American Telephone & Telegraph 
Company The Chicago franchise is the second most 
important franchise of that great monopoly. The 
most important franchise which it holds is the fran- 
chise for the City of New York, which it owns 
through the New York Telephone Company. 

Therefore, when the City Council, or its committee, 
discusses the terms of that franchise, it should have 
before it, not the officers of this wholly-owned Chi- 
cago subsidiarv, the Illinois Bell Telephone Company. 
They are only the hired men of the American Tele- 
phone and Telegraph Company. It should call be- 
fore it the officers of the American Telephone & 
Telegraph Company. They are the real men with 
whom this Citv should deal. The Aldermen should 
ask that Walter S. Gifford, President of the Ameri- 
can Telephone & Telegraph Company, come to Chi- 
cago to discuss the terms of that franchise with 
them This franchise is important enough to war- 
rant Mr. Gifford's coming to Chicago to testify. 

And then the Committee should find out just what 
this big monopoly is doing with the money which it 
gets from the people of the City of Chicago, who are 
its telephone subscribers. 

It should find out from him, how it happens that 
the American Telephone and Telegraph Company is 
the largest company in the big Radio Trust, and 



how it happens that his company has been sued as 
a member of that Trust, and as a violator of the 
anti-trust laws of the nation. The City of Chicago 
does not want to grant franchises to law-breakers! 

When the Illinois Commerce Commission tried to 
regulate the Illinois Bell Telephone Company, it 
was told that it had no right to investigate its long 
distance business because that was interstate, and 
it was being regulated by the Interstate Commerce 
Commission. But the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission has not regulated that business, nor has it 
regulated the business of the .American Telephone 
Company, and President Gifford of the American 
Telephone and Telegraph Company appeared be- 
fore Congress to protest against real regulation by 
the government. Yet, when the Illinois Commerce 
Commission tried to force the Illinois Bell Telephone 
Companv to grant reasonable rates in Chicago, the 
Company quickly went to the Federal Courts to stop 
that action. 

Therefore, the new franchise should provide that 
the companv must agree as an Illinois corporation, 
to abide bv the decision of the Illinois Commerce 
Commission and the Illinois courts. Mr. Gifford is 
the only man who can give that promise and see that 
it is kept. 

But Mr. Gift'ord should also be asked about the 
part his company— and it is his com'pany that is 
asking franchise from the City of Chicago — is play- 
ing in the creation of a talking motion picture 
monopoly. The American Telephone and Telegraph 
Company owns the Electric Research Products In- 
corporated, which handles that monopoly. Accord- 
ins to the testimony taken by the United States 
Senate Committee on Patents, that company has 
forced more than 2,000 motion picture theatres to 
install its equipment at extortionate rates. Its ex- 
tortions, according to that testimony, already amount 
to $5O,000'.O0O. These contracts, it was also charged, 
are illegal, as violations of the Clayton law. 

Vet. '^fr. (4itTord has advertised that his powerful 
inonopoly will not increase its dividends to its stock- 
holders, nor will it pay any stock dividends; that all 
profits over the present dividends will be turned 
hack into the company to give better telephone ser- 
vice. 

Mr. Gifford should tell the Chicago City Council 
what interest it can therefore have in creating a 
Radio Trust or a Talking Motion Picture monopoly. 
In its answer to the government suit, the American 
Telephone and Telegraph Company said it was re- 
ceiving no royalties from its participation in the 
Radio Trust pool, so that its stockholders are deriv- 
ing no benefit from the lawbreaking of the Radio 
Trust, or the destruction of independent broadcasters 
and manufacturers. Nor can they have any interest 
in the telephone company's gouging of the motion 
picture theatre owners. 

It is a notorious fact that telephone rates in this 
country could be reduced 50% and then there would 
be anywhere from 20% to 30% profit upon the 
actual investment, including a surplus. 

Under these circumtsances, and in the interest of 
our over-buvdened tax-payers, Labor believes it is 
justified in asking our Mayor and the members of 
our Citv Council to refuse a franchise to this un- 
lawful combination, this rate-increasing, racketeer- 
ing telephone trust, unless such franchise provides 
for the adequate and proper protection of our City

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Recommendation for Legislation to Authorize the City 
of Chicago to Make 5-year Contracts for the Dis- 
posal of the Carcasses of Dead Animals, Etc. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Department op La-w,} 
Chicago, May 7, 1931.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Some time ago the City entered into 
a contract for the disposition of dead animals for a 
period of five years. The validity of this contract 
was attacked and the case went to the Supreme 
Court. A decision in this case was handed down 
several months ago, in which it was held that 
whereas the City had availed itself of the benefits 
of the contract it was bound to pay for what was 
done. But the court seemed to side with the view- 
that the act authorizing five year contracts for the 
disposition of garbage did not apply in the case of 
dead animals. A rehearing was applied for in that 
case and the court granted the rehearing. It will 
probably not finally decide the question for several 
months to come. If the question should be decided 
in such a way that the City would be construed as 
without power to make a contract under the act 
just mentioned, it might be at a disadvantage in the 
matter of disposing of dead animals. 

In order to meet this situation we have drafted a 
bill providing for the amendment of the act relating 
to the disposition of garbage so as to include dead 
animals and decayed animal products that have been 
condemned. We submit the draft of said bill for 
the consideration of your Honorable Body. In case 
it is deemed advisable to present the same to the 
Legislature, we will take such action if so directed.

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
the Bill submitted with the foregoing communication 
without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Arvey moved to recommend said Bill to 
the General Assembly for enactment into law. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Teas— Coughlin, Jackson, Cronson, Schreiber, Healy, 



Hodes, Sutton, Govier, Rowan, Wilson, Hartnett, Doyle,

The following is said Bill as recommended: 

A BILL 

For an Act to amend Section 1 of "An Act to 
authorize cities of a certain class to make con- 
tracts for a period exceeding one year relating to 
the collection and final disposition of garbage", 
approved March 30, 1897. 

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: 

Section 1. Section 1 of "An Act to authorize 
cities of a certain class to make contracts for a 
period exceeding one year relating to the collection 
and final disposition of garbage", approved March 
30, 1897, is amended to read as follows: 

Section 1. That any city having a population 
of more than one hundred thousand inhabitants, 
as shown by any school census or by the federal 
census, shall be and hereby is authorized and em- 
powered to make contracts for more than one 
year and not exceeding five years, relating to the 
collection and final disposition of garbage, ashes, 
dead animals from the streets, alleys, animal 
pounds, and other public grounds, and all car- 
casses of animals, cut meats, poultry and fish con- 
demned at the public markets, railway depots and 
express depots within such city. 



In the Matter of Legislation Affecting the City of Chi- 
cago Introduced in the 57th General Assembly. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion which was referred to the Committee on Judiciary 
and State Legislation: 

- Department op La'w,^ 
Chicago, May 8, 1931.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Since writing our last letter to you 
in relation to bills pending before the Legislature, a 
large number of new bills have been introduced. We 
give below a list of those that have been introduced 
since then that we regard as of particular interest 
to your Honorable Body, as follows : 

senate bills. 

485. This bill provides that utility companies 
furnishing service in the state must sell the same 
to municipal corporations when requested to do so 
by the municipality, without discrimination between 
privately and publicly-owned utilities, and it further 
authorizes the resale of service by the municipal 
corporation. 

486. This bill proposes to add a section to the 
Act of 1913 authorizing municipalities to own and 
operate public utilities. The added section provides 
that a municipal utility district may pledge its earn- 
ings for the extension, repair or improvement of its 
property or service without creating a debt upon 
the city, town, village or municipal utility district. 



May 13, 1931. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



179 



.487. This is an amendment to the Public Utility 
. Act providing that rules, regulations, orders or de- 
cisions of a city made under the act may be appealed 
from to the courts in the same manner as appeals 
may be taken from the rulings of the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission. It increases the number of 
signatures required for a petition to submit the 
question of municipal public utilities to a refer- 
endum. 

510. This is another re-apportionment bill. It 
creates 51 senatorial districts, the same number as 
at present. This bill was sent to the Committee on 
Apportionment, but later the committee was dis- 
charged and the bill was placed on the calendar and 
has received its first reading in the Senate. 

527. This is the aldermanic four-year term bill 
for the City of Chicago. It is the bill which the City 
Council endorsed. 

533. This is another City bill endorsed by the 
City Council. It seeks to do away with the appoint- 
ment of physically unfit persons to the classified 
service of the City. 

534. This is an amendment to Clause 96, Section 
1 of Article V of the Cities and Villages Act. It 
amplifies the present clause authorizing cities to 
license and control wagons and other vehicles carry- 
ing loads within the- City, and to prescribe the width 
of tires. 

536. This is an amendment to the Sanitary Dis- 
trict Act authorizing the Sanitary District of Chi- 
cago to issue bonds without referendum for the con- 
struction and enlargement of sewage treatment 
works, pumping stations, tunnels and conduits. It 
seems to authorize about $40,000,000.00 in bonds 
without a referendum. 

545. This is an amendment to Section 1 of an 
Act relating to the construction of sidewalks. It 
provides for the consent of the owner of the property 
abutting on the sidewalk before the passage of an 
ordinance for such constructions. And it provides 
further that after the passage of the ordinance the 
owner shall be given 90 days' notice to repair. It 
is said that there are abuses under the present law, 
which this bill will overcome. 

547. This is an amendment to a number of sec- 
tions of the recently enacted statute authorizing a 
Working Cash Fund. The amendments do not seem 
to affect the City of Chicago, however. They seem 
to enlarge the act so as to include other cities that 
are not now included within the terms of the act. 

550. This is an amendment to the Oil Inspection 
Act authorizing cities and villages to provide for in- 
spection of petroleum products, to fix fees therefor, 
and to regulate the shipment, possession and use of 
same. Such regulation to be in. addition to the re- 
quirements of the state but not in conflict therewith. 

562. Amendment to the Criminal Code defining a 
public enemy and providing for punishment. It 
authorizes a sheriff or police officer to arrest such 
person en sight, and any weapon found on him upon 
arrest may be introduced as evidence against him. 

572. This bill provides for a state tax on motor 
buses, trucks, trailers and semi-trailers carrying 
passengers or property for hire, the proceeds of the 
tax to go into the road fund. 

578. This bill provides that when streets are con- 
structed by cities and villages and are taken over by 
the State Department of Public Works and Buildings 
and made part of the State Highway System, the city 
or village shall be refunded the additional value of 
such improved street at the time of its designation 



as a state route, with interest from such time until 
the refund is actually made, which may be in 10 
equal annual installments. 

587. Amendment to Teachers' Pension Fund Act 
designed to leave the amount apportioned under the 
State Distributive Fund Act without diminution or 
increase, regardless of the amount taken for teachers 
pensions. It is said to be a companion bill to Senate 
Bill No. 138 which is the Income Tax Bill out of 
which certain moneys will be set apart for school 
purposes. 

624. This is a bill providing for a commission of 
nine members to investigate the state and municipal 
revenue situation and make recommendations for 
improvements not later than January, 1933. 

' HOUSE BILLS. 

908. This bill is similar to Senate Bill No. 485 
which requires public utility corporations to sell 
their products to the Citv and allowing resale by 
the City. 

911. Amendment to the Banking Act which pro- 
vides that branch banks may be operated by large 
banks with a capital stock of $3,000,000.00 or over. 

923. This bill would authorize The Sanitary Dis- 
trict of Chicago to remove obstructions from the 
Desplaines River by excavating, dredging or filling 
whenever necessary for the purpose of preventing a 
nuisance therein, the authority to be temporary only 
during such times when the district, by reason of 
the limitation of, its construction program, is unable 
to build fast enough to prevent sewage from flowing 
into the Desplaines River. 

934. This is the City Council's four-year aider- 
manic term bill and is the same as Senate Bill No. 
527. 

937. Amendment to the Juul Law excluding taxes 
of the Annuity and Benefit Fund of The Sanitary 
District of Chicago from the scaling process. 

970. An addition to the enumeration of powers 
of cities and villages providing for examination, 
licensing and regulation of building contractors. 
License fee limited to $100.00. 

981. Authorizing West Chicago Park District to 
issue bonds not exceeding $2,500,000.00 without a 
referendum. 

1001. This bill provides for state regulation of 
wholesale meat business. It will probably operate 
to limit the City's authority in this respect. 

1004. This is a bill putting all municipal court 
employes under the City's Civil Service. Present 
employes are to be kept in their places as though 
appointed to them after examination. 

1007. This bill will require the City in making 
contracts to give preference to contractors residing 
within the State who use Illinois products, materials 
and labor, and shall also show preference for sup- 
plies, materials and provisions produced, manu- 
factured or grown in the State of Illinois when mak- 
ing purchases. 

1009. This is an amendment to certain sections 
of the Motor Vehicle Act and changes specifications 
with reference to axle spacing and with respect to 
trailers, and makes other changes. 

1015. This bill proposes to authorize any county 
to raise its quota of state, county and municipal 
taxes through a referendum of the voters. 

1016. This is an amendment to the Public Utility 
Act providing that in hearings before the commission

io dctermino the I'casonableness of rates, the rates 
and charges complained of shall be deemed prima 
facie unreasonable and unlawful when they are 
actually or relatively in excess of any rate main- 
tained by common carriers within the state ov within 
adjoining states, or between points in Illinois and 
adjoining states. 

1017. This is a further amendment of the Public 
Utilities Act providing for an investigation into rates 
upon complaint. It seems to be a companion bill to 
the preceding number and to the subsequent number. 

1018. This bill provides that where a court sets 
aside any rule, regulation, order or decision of the 
Illinois Commerce Commission, it shall, at the same 
time, order the commission to take such further 
proceedings as may be necessary. 

1019. Amendment to the Public Utilities Act 
which, in a general way, provides for reparation in 
case of excess charges. 

In order that Your Honorable Body may be in- 
formed as to the condition of all bills now pendmg 
before the Legislature, we send herewith copy ot
